I am excited to announce that for the first time, the city of Cagayan de Oro will be having an Ambassador for this global documentation campaign. Together with Metro Manila, headed by Jay Nava Ermitano, i will be representing as this year's City Ambassador.

The 24HourProject is a street photography project that aims to document the human condition of multiple cities during one single day in real time. Photographers share one photo per hour during twenty four hours. The idea was formulated by Renzo Grande, a photographer who focuses his passion and sensitivity to document daily street stories with a sense of perpetual iconic emotions, and Sam Smotherman, a Los Angeles-based photographer.

Started last 2012, the idea began with a personal project to document and compare two different cities for one full day. Accordingly that same year, other photographers got interested and started to take off the first edition of the project with 65 photographers in 24 cities, the project was multiplied about 5 times on 2013 with 340 official photographers in 132 cities and was multiplied again on 2014 reaching 900 photographers in 312 cities from 72 countries. Last year 2015 was also a success where a total of 2030 photographer in 650 cities from 101 countries gathered and joined the annual tradition.

Through the 24HourProject's mission, market and global exhibitions, the project is said to reach millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real live stories.

Document Humanity to Make a Difference. By bringing the 24HourProject world community together and creating partnerships with NGOs, we aim to raise awareness to world human condition issues.

The Global collaboration of the project lead to gallery exhibitions in Finland, Venezuela, Italy, Australia, United States, Iran and Mexico.

Each participant shares to social media one photo every hour for the full 24 hours of their city following 24HourProject guidelines. The images, theme and content become viral in all social medias giving a live view to the world hour by hour. After the event, photographer select their best pictures taken during the event and submit their final 24 photos to Photos then become selected to travel exhibitions and are part of conferences, workshops and photo books.
